Codex Digital, developer of digital media recorders and media management systems for film and television production, announced a collaboration with P+S Technik to provide a workflow for the new PS-Cam X35 digital camera.
A setup of the PS-Cam X35 and a Codex Onboard Recorder can be seen on the P+S Technik booth at IBC 2011 (Hall 11, Stand E28). A Codex Onboard Recorder is recording images from the PS-Cam X35 camera. The data packs can be moved over to a Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X where the unique Codex Virtual File System will generate whatever deliverables are required such as Avid DNX-HD MXF or Apple ProRes for editorial or DPX for VFX and finishing. Codex is providing an entire production platform for the X35, from recording the images produced by the camera, through to dailies delivery and postproduction.
“Our aim at Codex”, explained managing director Marc Dando, “is to provide robust, common workflows that support the various camera choices that are available today. P+S Technik have produced an interesting camera, and we are pleased to support their technology.”
“We are very excited that CODEX will support the PS-RAW and uncompressed workflows,” said Michael Erkelenz, manager of P+S Technik’s digital capturing business unit. “Many P+S Technik cameras such as the Weisscam HS-2 MKII digital high-speed cameras are in use today worldwide. Our new flagship camera for motion-effects – the PS-Cam X35 – shows impressive image quality. The support of the CODEX product range widens the possibilities of our users to provide exceptional pictures.”
